Recall started against Sheriff
By John Gutekunst
Monday, August 2, 2010 4:08 PM MST
An organization seeking to recall La Paz County Sheriff Don Lowery took out recall petition papers July 28. The chairperson of the Committee to Recall Don Lowery is Joyce Hiatt-Curran, while the treasurer is Danielle Forbis.
To recall Lowery, the committee will need to obtain 1,351 valid signatures on the petitions. They have until Nov. 26 to gather the signatures, but Hiatt-Curran told the Pioneer she hoped to gather all the signatures they need during August so the recall can be on the November ballot.
'I don't want to cost the county more money for an election," she said.
Hiatt-Curran said she bore no ill will toward Lowery or the Chief Deputy, Maj. Rick Paterson, as she has known them both for years. However, she said she does not believe they have done a good job running the Sheriff's Office.
The Parker Pioneer contacted Lowery's office for a comment and was told a response would be ready the following week.
On the application for the recall petitions, the following reasons were given for recalling Lowery:
"Sheriff Lowery does not have the experience, management skills, or budget preparation to carry out this position.
"Lowery has shown unwillingness to work with the Board, County Manager and Finance Department.
"Lowery appointed Under Sheriff Paterson, with compromised managerial skills, fiscal understanding or ability to communicate with key figures in county government. Paterson has micro-managed personnel to the point that morale is at its lowest.
"Lowery has shown an inability to make command decisions because of his lack of knowledge of the position and what it stands for. Continuously 'unavailable' for key decisions and issues needing to be resolved.
"Lowery moved or kept personnel in key positions that do not deserve or belong."
"Lowery filed a frivolous lawsuit against the Board. Paterson did not follow proper procedures in obtaining legal counsel resulting in unpaid attorney fees. This is a flagrant misappropriation of funds and taxpayers' money. Decisions to obtain legal counsel were pushed through by Paterson, but were ultimately Lowery's decision.
"Continuously allowing agency staff to drive county-assigned vehicles to Havasu daily. This is a flagrant violation of county policy and procedure and a waste of taxpayer's money."
Lowery was elected sheriff in 2008.

The main reason that I will sign the recall petition against Sheriff Don Lowery is in the fact that he has openly stopped the 911 dispatch and his Deputies from taking or responding to any complaints or calls for help in Quartzsite, if even from the Mayor himself!
Last year a resident of Quartzsite found out that his stepdaughter was having sexual relations with a Quartzsite Police Officer. It has been reported that Chief Jeff Gilbert refused to take or make a Police Report of the complaint.
Chief Jeff Gilbert openly stated in several Town of Quartzsite Meetings that he saw it as a personnel matter (videos on YouTube) and not a criminal one. Donít know about you, but in 1998 when another Quartzsite Police Officer was reported as to be sexual involved with an underage girl a Police Report was taken and former Quartzsite Police Officer Kirk D. Peterson is now serving time for Statuary Rape of a child!
As you can see, the Sheriffís Department is the next step in the food chain when you have a Chief of Police or your local Police Officers refusing to take reports, formally file Written Police Reports of the Criminal Complaint, or refusing to protecting the interest and rights of its residents under the law. It this the man you want in office? I donít and Iíll help in getting the signatures and votes to remove such a man from office, as he doesnít care about the duties of his office or my neighbors here in Quartzsite, Arizona.

eye of the people: clearly you are one of them. You work at the department and continue to threaten the security of the people. You urge this person to put it in writing then follow it with a public threat of you will face charges if it is false. That is not your position! Let them tell their side and complaint. Stop intimidating. Good god our entire community already feels the threat of the corrupt department. Wonder how that makes Lowery feel?

U guys don't even care about lowery, u want the people underneath him, I don't blame u!!!! But ur looking in the wrong direction, they r hiding in plain sight, ur looking at lowery to much, if u focus on the underlings, he wouldn't be able to stand anyways. He is just a puppet and he says what he is told too. Who pushed to get him elected? Who is standing by his side always? Who has the most to lose? Ur looking to much at the past, and missing the present! It hiding under ur noses and they want u to focus on the past so u don't see them. The passed always ties together with the future. Go to the nearest store and ask people about the SO and their people, the people no the truth! Look on social networks stop talking and ask. Most people will tell u if it doesnt come from them

I have only lived here for 2 years and I have never lived in a more corrupt town as Parker. I know most people are saying move out, but no I want to see this town torn apart with new and trusting people. All the lawyers are in with the judges, the district attorneys and all the policemen. It is pathetic that you can't even find a good lawyer here that isn't in the club. So please believe me, if anyone needs a lawyer go outside of Parker to obtain one. I am very familiar with a case going on right now that is so ridiculous, it is almost a circus act. Come on Parker, step up to the plate and make a difference in this town. It can be done. I have been in touch with some VERY well known attorneys and have received some information back of where to begin.

i dont know why they ever made that wasteland a county
it doesnt seem to have anyone sane or smart enough to run it without being crazy
they had a police chief and a few of his troops here sent to prison so it does happen
i think your part of az was better off before it was made its own county. i guess all the same jerks would live there anyway tho

emails can be traced by a professional back to the computer that sent them
